When the exchange Kraken opened in the beginning of September – allowing users to trade in Euros, Bitcoins and Litecoins – they promised news soon and kept their promise. The platform has added US dollars to their base of available currencies.
You can confirm the update here and check the announcement on Bitcoin sub-Reddit.
Kraken was designed to allow virtual coin traders enjoy some of the same features used by Forex traders like stop orders and margin trading. The platform was developed by Jesse Powell, the CEO of the San Francisco-based company Payward, and guarantees high security levels.
When the exchange abandoned its beta stage, in the beginning of the month, they also assured they were working to add British pounds and Namecoins to their group of currencies. With the US dollars coming so fast, we guess it’s just a matter of time until Kraken has more good news to announce.
